Hi. And where do I even begin to thank you for the incredible support you showed on my last post? It was amazing and touching to hear from every single one of you that commented via Facebook, Instagram, email or on the post. I will respond to all of the comments because each one was so special to me. I truly feel like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. Thank you for being so receptive, respectful and loving.
This week has flow by. I feel like I blinked and it’s already Thursday. Here are a few scenes from my week.
First, the sisters were reunited today and they are too freaking cute for words. This is their “intensely focused on a ball” face. I love Zoey’s posture in this one. She had her eye on the prize!
I’ve still been all about banana and egg white oatmeal for breakfast. I have had a few smoothies too but I keep coming back to the oatmeal.
I’ve also been working my way through my sample of Lumi juices. One of my favorite things about them is that they are not only organic but shelf stable and most of my juices were good until mid-April. Yay! This morning I had the Belmont Beet and it was really good. 10 ounces, 55 calories, 10 grams of sugar and a mix of beet, celery, orange, carrot, cucumber and lemon.
I have been cooking every night despite long days. It’s my favorite way to unwind although we don’t end up eating most nights until after 9 p.m. Sunday was steak marsala, sauteed kale sprouts and roasted herb and garlic potatoes.
Monday was chicken braised in a mixture of Trader Joe’s Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette and coconut milk with roasted veggies on the side.
And Tuesday night was my favorite easy lemon parmesan salmon with pureed cauliflower and green peas. I have such a soft spot for peas. They are delicious!
And finally…I was watching The Walking Dead tonight (I just can’t stop) and they were listening to a CD labeled “Running CD.” This brought me back to the days when I used to run with a handheld Sony Discman Sport (with shock protection!). Can you believe how far we’ve come!? I seriously remember making CDs, strapping this thing on my hand and going running. I actually still have a few big books of CDs that I’m just too nostalgic to throw away. I read recently that Starbucks is going to quit selling CDs. It’s the end of an era, for sure! (Let’s not even talk about the Boyz II Men and Whitney Houston TAPES I had when I was really young!)
Beet juice…yes or no?
Did you ever run with a handheld CD player?
